Pins connected to pinholes.
Pins connected to pins.
Pinholes connected to pinholes.
Just pins. Just pinholes.

Each plate file contains about 24 / 48 parts.

It's for building structures and connecting two flat things.

For a Christmas tree decoration print the pinh_combine3.stl and assemble the 3 parts overlapping.

Found a similar Pin-thing from Tbuser:

And this one from chriscrewdson:


Before printing a plate you may want to print the test file first.
Check if the pins fit into the holes. If not change the OpenSCAD file or your printers settings.
Choose a stl-file or create your own one with OpenSCAD.
Print a plate of parts. Assemble them in your own way.
Printing the pins will acquire a fan for cooling.

There is a nice way to build a chain. Assemble 3 parts to a ring. Then build the next ring through the first one.

If you need more stability use glue.
